About 85% of employees say their company-provided health insurance is either “very important” or “extremely important,” according to a report by the Employee Benefit Research Institute.
Here are some of the key findings:
- Benefits satisfaction and job satisfaction show a strong correlation. Those who are “extremely satisfied” with their benefits (59%) also reported high overall job satisfaction.
- Health insurance is one of the most important factors employees consider when seeking a new job or deciding to stay at a current one.
- Retirement savings plans and dental or vision benefits rank second and third in preferred employee benefits after health insurance.
